One piece held my television. I only have one big television downstairs (a small one is in the kitchen to watch cooking shows) and though it's large, it's a flat screen. The bulky, black piece from Pier 1 was fine looking, but it's size and dark color overpowered the room.
I decided a while ago to begin the hunt for something smaller and white to take it's place. I love all the pieces at Savannah Hope Vintage; they are old and beautiful. They have great lines, and were built at a time when people took pride in their work and did things right. Solid wood, dovetailed drawers, and since the furniture is used, it's a very green choice to buy vintage.
After peeking around a couple of times, I finally asked the owner, Andrea, if she had anything that might work. She mentioned a sideboard, and when I looked, it was exactly perfect. Great lines, and amazing attention to detail. I took pictures with my cell, and they aren't great, but they drive the point home. (I promise to take better pics for you to see, soon.)

I wish the pic were better so you could see the amazing detail.
